    Not to worry, there should be many more parties before the season's out. Not sure they'll bring out quite as many armchair psychologists as this one, but we can always live in hope.

    Speaking of Fumie - here is a Japanese documentary from 2004 that someone posted.

    There are sections where she's speaking in English to young skaters, and in conversations with Sasha Cohen, Timothy Goebel and Nicole Bobek. Most touching is a scene where she meets Janet Lynn. Despite how sweetly she is portrayed in this, I have no doubt that deep down Fumie is a closet diva.

    I also think that niceness is a cloak for depravity.

    It was a 2toe instead of a 3toe.

    Apparently, hate -much like love- can make one blind . I counted 3 revolutions in this jump https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCqA...utu.be#t=1m02s.

    She doubled her toeloop in her second program, which might be what you're thinking of. I still thought she looked good overall and those were strong performances for Christmas galas.

    Yes, it's definitely a 3toe.

I remember a Japanese broadcast where the announcers were saying you can tell she is an artist by her dramatic bows. COUGH. Unfortunately if she put half into her choreography during the program than she did during her bows, maybe her Swan Lake would have read. So I'd always joke with friends about Fumie that she sucks but she gives SERIOUS BOW. She's got the eyebrow lift, that look of 'suffering for my artistry' when she's bowing after a two triple performance. Not a fan, never was. She could never even straighten her knee let alone her ankle. She flutzed, she had almost zero flexibility. Come on. I'm not trying to be critical, but let's get real with her.
    You make Fumie sound like she was as bad as Rachael Flatt or Tonia Kwaitkowski. She wasn't that bad. She had a lack of awareness of her own body, but she worked hard at growing in her skating. By 04-05 and 05-06 her programs were improved. She brought some interesting, if not beautiful, programs to show from 2007-2009. She kept herself slim throughout her career too, which is more than I can say for many of today's American ladies.

    She has officially announced that she's looking for a sponsor in order to make the olympic team.

    I'm sure that the sponsors will come in droves. The doors and windows will burst open and she will get so many offers she will have no idea which to choose.

    Oy vey. This is tough. Fumie had her day, and I'm sorry she can't be happy with her results from the past and move on. Especially because Japan currently has three top ladies and, if Miki comes back, may not even be able to send all of them to the Olympics!

    Oh, it is sad. She lost the sense of reality.

    Good for Fumie. I'm sure Japan has enough to around. She should bring Chika into the act.

    Given that Takahashi/Tran split, Suguri/Suguri should try to earn a spot in Pairs!

    If Fumie could get a sponsor to pay for better outfits and music, I am 200% in favor of this. These incoherent themes and costumes seem to be her main enemy.

    That wasn't all that bad. She was clean (may have flutzed). 51.97

    It's not going to compete with the best in her country right now, but she could make Japanese Nats next year if she keeps going this way.
